Who We Are.
We’re an Asian-Australian family of 4, raising our 2 little munchkins in New Zealand while supporting Daddy Pau running his dream gym at our local beach-side suburb.
Together, we’re on a journey seeking answers to our curiosities, leaving footprints around the globe, and sharing our discoveries along the way.

Hey, I’m Kida.

Background History: See, I wasn’t a very good student at school, failing English and barely passed half of the subjects I took. I collected a stack of detention slips for skipping classes, but ironically, I managed to graduate with a Music degree with a discretionary entrance in University of Auckland, New Zealand.
This gypsy life allowed me to travel the world 3-4 months a year, I was a Jack-of-all-trades, lost with too many passions, or maybe none at all. But one thing I knew deep down, was I didn’t fit into the usual 9-5 corporate world.
I moved to Australia shortly after, changed jobs every year, and moved from place to place. Until one day, I found myself sitting at a bus stop, homeless with all of my belongings in a suitcase and nowhere to go…
Finally, I got fed up with room-sharing and being told to move out all the time, I put all my savings together and bought a studio apartment off-the-plan. With the remaining AU$10,000, I backpacked around Europe on my working holiday visa to London. I was still a wanderer lost without a direction.
After I returned to Sydney, I was astonished to find property prices almost doubled in 2 years. And that was the turning point of my life where I suddenly realised, I’ve been making pennies the HARD way.
Before I could settle down into my new life, I became pregnant while working in my newfound passion in real estate. So with a lot of time and not a lot to do, I turned my all-time love for travel into a platform where I documented and shared our journey. During the year of my pregnancy, I invested all of my spare time in financial education, and that was how I found my new path in life.
The rest is history, and I never looked back.

Kyra is an inquisitive 3-year-old who’s a bundle of energy day and night. You could say she’s a dream baby -only- when we’re traveling. Somehow, she always manages to keep herself busy by doing the most random things you could possibly imagine. Yet she still has the energy to be the sweetest, and most caring big sister.
Back at home, sleeping is her punishment. She could sing, dance, draw, play, chat, and explore all day long. Her favorite sing-along song is Baa Baa
Black White Sheep. When she’s into a character, she becomes a die-hard fan loyal only to that character and none other. We used to have a house full of Minnie Mouse, then it’s Peppa Pig, followed by Paw Patrol, and now KiKi & MiuMiu – a Youtube channel called Babybus.
She’s been up to the mountains of Yosemite National Park, down to the ocean trench of Samoa. Survived 45°C heat of Palm Springs, and sub-zero temperatures of Tongariro in New Zealand. She had tasted exotic food like durian ice cream, frog legs, and goats from Vietnam, and loved making inedible dumplings from China.
We can probably summarize Daddy Pau in one sentence.
He loves his gym, he wakes up thinking about it, going to bed dreaming about it and calls the gym his baby.
Daddy is loved by our kids, he’s silly, fun and a softie. An easy-going city boy who loves traveling with the family, without any travel-related work commitments that is. An excellent travel tag-along in my opinion.
His motto is: “You love the water, I love looking after bags for you on the beach. That’s why we attract.”
Born amid Covid-19, he’s busy growing rolls at home, for now…
This little dude is a milk monster and drinks until curdled milk comes back out. He’s inquisitive and loves to be a part of everything. He coos, and sighs in response to our conversations, and resists to sleep unless we’re out and about.
Baby Joah hardly cries and has given Mummy a big cheeky smile in week 2. He’s adorable to the core, and can’t wait to travel the world with us.
